In the Perch has taken a lot of effort to make sure its birds are well looked after. Each of the enclosures have different birds from different regions. They are free to fly around and do what birds do. Well done!

We went here because we are bird lovers. It cost us $14 each and considering we were only there for about 20 minutes and had seen everything this was a bit expensive. Yes they are building 3 new aviaries but not open yet. I hope...More

This place has only recently opened but is already a must-do for this region. It's relaxed and friendly, and one of the highlights for us was the Bush Stone-curlews that walked around our feet. Australian birds are in a walk-through aviary - colourful finches, parrots...More
